BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Most pundits believe LeBron James will join the Lakers, Rockets, or Sixers in free agency, if he doesn't re-sign in Cleveland. Celtics are considered a long-shot, if they're interested.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski weighed in on ESPN Radio on Boston's chances at landing LeBron.
"He has to kick the tires on the great organizations, the great teams," Woj said. "If he wants to chase Jordan, if he wants to win titles, of course you'd want to look at Boston. They have the structure of Danny Ainge as GM and Brad Stevens as coach, and a winning infrastructure of players. You'd have to do a lot of work to that roster to make it work, but if LeBron James knocks on your door and says he wants to come, I'm not sure there's anyone that says no. But it would be a dramatic thing, largely because Kyrie's there."
As luck would have it Kyrie Irving spoke yesterday about whether he could see himself playing with LeBron again, a year removed from forcing a trade from the Cavaliers.
"I'm truly grateful to be able to speak with management as well as our coaching staff," he said. "We pretty much have open dialogue with the direction we're going in, and we all feel confident that we all have something to offer here. The fact that we're even having those conversations and I'm a part of it, I'm thankful for. But obviously, it's a business at the end of the day. Ownership and management, they're gonna feel what's best for our future, and I'm fully supportive of it, so we'll see what happens."
